With Lost and Found Oliver Jeffers has written a sweet little story about a boy who finds a penguin on his doorstep and decides to return it home to Antarctica. Entertainment One and Studio A.K.A. turned it into a beautifully animated film that retains the simplicity of the story.

But where did Oliver Jeffers find his original inspiration?  One can't help but think that   he must have seen Bugs Bunny in the Looney Tunes Short 8 Ball Bunny, where Bugs Bunny meets with mishaps as he tries to return a pen-gu-ine to the Antarctic.
Why not check all three out for a compare and contrast session?
